Anyone watched the new animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the movies yet? if you have, don't you just love it? If you haven't don't you just want to watch it because it was MADE WITH LINUX :D.

From the April First edition of Post Magazine from the South China Morning Post it rights

"Creative staff report to Imagi headquarters in Eight Commercial Tower, in Industrial section of Chai Wan. It houses about 450 animators involved with developing TMNT and the new CG animation film projects. The size of that workforce may pale in comparison with those used by major Hollywood studios for similar productions but Imagi prefers its crew lean, mean and highly productive.
"Hollywood in the super hero-movie-making bussiness. "We do it at about a fifth the cost." Hollywood typically spends upwards of US$100 million for a live-action or CG superhero movie. Instead of using an expensive, commercial computer operating system, Imagi animators adopted Linux - the free-to-use platform developed online by a global community of software engineers. It also offers improved security over other platforms," Lee says.

That Security and reliability is vital to the Imagi set-up, where the Los Angeles-based creative studio must work closely with the office in Hong Kong."
